Today my lower elementary school students made pinwheels from Ednah Anne Rich's book Paper Sloyd For Primary Grades. During recess they ran all over the school campus, as a blaze of bright colors. Some of the students made extras to give as gifts to favorite staff members.

My middle school students are making boxes of various kinds. I am preparing for my trip to teach box making with the Annapolis Woodworker's Guild. While I am out of town, my students will teach woodworking to adults and kids at a special school event intended to raise awareness of the school. So, while I'm teaching how to make boxes, my students will teach how to make tops, toy cars and button toys.

Make, fix and create...
